Tim Tebow, one of the most polarizing figures in sports, was recently rated the most influential athlete by Forbes.com. While his reach is unmatched, Tebow has found himself in a tough situation to overcome with his recent release by the Jets. Tony Dungy has some advice and words of encouragement for him.
